Activists Raghda and Amer met in prison – through a hole in the wall. They fell in love, got married, and had three sons. Sean McAllister begins his story in 2009 and since then for over 5 years, he documents the odyssey of the family and their lives as refugees. A Syrian Love Story reveals us the story of two people and their love, love for their family, and their beloved homeland being hammered by fate and war.
